I'm Housebroken!Smiling is my specialty

Athena landed in a crowded shelter and no one came to claim her.  The shelter was impressed by her friendly personality and wanted to ensure she had a bright future.   When GSROC got the call, we made room in our lifeboat for this sweet girl.

Athena is about 4  years old and is so happy to meet new people.   She is so eager to make friends, it was difficult to get her photo!   Once she realizes you want to meet her, a big doggy smile comes out and she rushes to give you kisses!  Athena is determined to make everyone a part of her social circle.

She is in a foster home and is doing well.  When she sees unfamiliar dogs , she may bark at first.  But, she quickly makes friends.    She likes to go with her foster dad to coffee shops.  She helps him get his work done in between hugs.

If you would like to meet Athena, please complete the online application and an adoption counselor will contact you.

Adoption Application If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, you may submit an application online or via fax. If you choose to send a fax, please download the Adoption Application here in PDF format; fill it out and sign it. You can fax it to us at 714-773-9430.

Home Visit Prior to any dog going home, we do require a home visit to ensure that your environment is safe and secure. Once your home has been approved, the adoption can move forward.

Adoption Donation Our adoption donation is minimum $350.00 plus $25.00 for microchip for adult dogs and $450 plus $25.00 microchip for puppies 1 year and under. This donation is tax deductible as allowed by law and helps to offset the costs that we have incurred for the dog's care and housing during his or her stay with our group. The minimum adoption donation does not entirely cover the investments that we have made in the dogs so if you are in a position to give more, we would be honored to receive your additional donation. All adoption donations go directly toward the needs of our dogs.

All dogs adopted through GSROC are spayed or neutered, current on their vaccines and de-wormed. Because the minimum Adoption Donation rarely covers the costs associated with each dog, we ask that adopters who are in a position to give additional funds do so at their discretion.
